Where the Chemistry Happens

We are seeking a professional like you to be responsible for managing the U.S. accounting and reporting activities associated with CCM. Reporting directly to the Financial Business Manager, you will ensure that significant accounting issues are appropriately identified, evaluated, steered, and communicated to local management (NA) and to the corporate center (CF). This includes supporting the overall Group audit as well as applicable statutory audits, as required.

You will frequently engage with multiple stakeholders to ensure topics and business transactions are adequately addressed from an accounting perspective. You will also provide expertise and financial reporting guidance as it relates to Group Guidelines and IFRS.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your negotiation, mediation, and conflict management skills, as well as your strong sense of accountability. You will also get to share your ability to manage ambiguity and influence others (with and without position of author).

Formula for Success

  • Leveraging your Bachelor's degree or higher in Accounting, Finance, Economics, or Business Administration and your experience in operational and/or financial accounting roles, you will provide expertise in specific topics of significant financial statement impact associated with scope coverage (precious metals, revenue recognition, BU specific provision valuations, etc.).

  • Capitalizing on your accounting operations, research, and financial reporting experience, you will support BU compliance activities and maintain awareness with respect to changing business conditions and/or structural changes having significant financial statement impacts.

  • Your ability to interpret and act on data insights will be critical in driving the resolution of internal/external audit topics and for providing guidance to implement FRC solutions.

  • Demonstrating your financial acumen, verbal and written communication skills, and data orientation experience with SAP, you will ensure topics are addressed in a timely and satisfactory manner.

  • Successfully engaging across the organization, you will build and maintain relationships throughout the organization, embrace change and foster a One Team culture. You should be comfortable making decisions independently where appropriate

  • Your commitment to excellence will be essential as you own responsibility for the overall quality of BASF’s financial reporting.

  • Applying your experience in auditing and internal controls, you will support external group and statutory audit activities
